One of its new range of Coolpix cameras launching this Spring, the stylish, high performance camera with HD video measures just 27.3mm thin. The Nikon Coolpix S8000 is perfect for those wanting a camera that delivers excellent quality photographs without having to carry a bulky camera or spend time to adjust settings. The Nikon S8000 is easy to use with a range of automatic settings, including four advanced anti-blur functions, provides 14.2 megapixels and with a fast start-up time and DSLR class AF system itís ready in an instant.

The high-definition (HD) movie function with stereo sound offers a resolution of 720p and will capture all of the action at an impressive 30 frames per second. The wide angle 10x optical zoom NIKKOR lens with extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lens gives crisp results whether youíre taking still images or shooting high-definition (HD) movie clips. It also gives you the freedom to take either beautiful, detailed close-ups of your subject in Macro Mode - getting as close as one centimetre - or impressive wide-angle and distant telephoto shots, perfect if you need to get the whole football team in. The advanced flash control system on the Nikon Coolpix S8000 delivers more natural-looking results when you shoot in low-light and the incredibly clear 7.6 cm (3-inch) high resolution (921K dot) LCD monitor enhances both shooting and playback with minimal reflections, even in bright sunlight.

Mark Pekelharing, Product Line Manager Consumer Products at Nikon Europe B.V comments: ďAll the features in the Coolpix S8000 camera, from the wide angle 10x zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens to the 4 anti-blur reduction functions, have been brought together to give the best experience while taking pictures. Itís for those who donít want to spend time getting to know the ins and outs of a camera but do want to get it out in all situations and take the best pictures. The portability of the slim body is essential to this, as well as its incredibly quick response time, so when you see that perfect shot on the LCD monitor, thatís what youíll get as the final picture.Ē

Creative Slider function integrated into the Nikon S8000
The Coolpix S8000 is equipped with the Creative Slider, a new way to adjust images without the use of a PC. Brightness, saturation and colour tone can be easily adjusted using the Rotary Multi Selector, to ensure the picture shows exactly what you want it to show. The Nikon Coolpix S8000 makes it easy to get sharp images with the four anti-blur functions, even with moving subjects or when handheld shooting for evening and night scenes. ISO 3200 light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred images with fast moving-subjects or in low-light and is accompanied by the lens-shift VR (Vibration Reduction). This reduces the effect of camera shake particularly in low-light or where the camera is unsteady. The advanced Motion Detection will compensate if thereís movement from the camera or subject, great if youíre shooting night or indoor sport scenes. Lastly, by selecting the Best Shot Selector (BSS) function, the camera will take a maximum of 10 sequential shots and save the sharpest one.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
